A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any normal hard disk. It is because an HDD uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, while an SDD takes advantage of modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are considerably higher, which makes these drives the best solution any time speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a computer system and for keeping data which is used repeatedly on web servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives so as to cache the more frequently used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered as their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

We use only SSDs on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and we've removed all HDDs on our production servers as to offer outstanding loading speeds for all aspects of our services - files, emails and databases. This way, any content which you upload to your shared hosting account will be reachable amazingly quickly. In order to improve the overall performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use multiple SSDs which work only as cache - our system stores regularly accessed content on them and upgrades it automatically. We employ this type of a configuration to ensure that multi-media heavy sites do not influence the performance of the other Internet sites hosted on our platform and that way all other sites can also take full advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is decreased, their lifespan will be longer, that's one more warranty for the security and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, your sites will be stored on a cloud platform that uses exclusively SSD drives for the storage of files, databases and e-mails. In addition to the revolutionary ZFS file system that we use, this configuration guarantees fast loading speed for every web application hosted on our end. To ensure that the websites of one customer do not affect the ones of another one, we also use a number of SSDs as cache - our system identifies files which are accessed more frequently and copies them, so that they start loading from the caching drives. The content on the latter is updated dynamically and therefore we can balance the load on all of the drives, ensure their extended lifespan, decrease the risk of disk failures and, of course, supply a fast and reliable website hosting service.
